Wednesday Updates :
2:09pm...Entry website is unable to handle to traffic levels. Keep trying.
2:25pm...Website back but not taking entries. Poor performance. The Primo events website should be able to handle the traffic volume.
4:07pm...Pretty dismal performance by Primo Events. It's not like it's the London Marathon it's dealing with. They seem to cope fine with small races but can't handle a surge in traffic. The second batch of 1000 will open at 8pm and it is usually easier to get in then.
5:55pm...Update from the organisers... Following on from Primo server difficulties at 2pm, the problem now seems to be rectified and the first 1000 places have been filled.
The second allocation of 1000 will open at 8pm this evening.

It looks as if the surge at 8pm caused problems as well.
The entry procedure is outlined in this previous post.
